A common skin condition that often begins in adolescence, acne can impact people well into adulthood and is caused when the pores in your skin are clogged with naturally occurring oil called sebum. The severity of acne, which can stay below the skin or protrude through the skin’s surface, is often characterized as mild, moderate or severe. For those with severe conditions, deep lesions may develop which are often inflamed and painful. When not treated, they can result in scarring.
